UHD 24GHz Patch Panels Enter the Broadcast Market

BES has designed and manufactured UHD 24GHz video patching panel in preparation for the industry's imminent upgrade to Ultra High Definition SDI.

Manufacturer of broadcast patching products, BES, has developed a range of video patching panels, which meet 24GHz.

Darren Fuller, Sales Manager at BES said: “BES is staying ahead of the marketplace demands by introducing new panels which will enable broadcasters to initiate the next big innovation in the industry. These new high specification panels are an excellent choice for top quality future proof products as not only do the connectors perform up to 24GHz, but they incorporate a range of original features, creating a versatile product which is suitable for broadcasters worldwide.”

A leading supplier of analogue and mixed signal semi-conductors, Semtech Corporation, tested and independently verified the panels’ capabilities. They are proceeding to use it in the ‘UHD in a Hybrid SDI / IP world - Joint Interoperability Demonstration’ at the SMPTE® fall conference in Hollywood and it will also be on show in the upcoming Inter BEE event in Japan in November 2015.

John Hudson, Director of Strategic Technology and New Business Development for Semtech’s Signal Integrity Product Group, said: “The interoperability of Semtech’s UHD-SDI portfolio in a hybrid SDI/IP infrastructure utilising IntoPIX’s Tico light compression technology, will address the critical requirements of broadcasters as they update their facilities with UHDTV enabled infrastructures. Advanced UHDTV solutions from BES will further drive rapid adoption of next generation hybrid UHDTV hybrid SDI/IP infrastructures.”

The range of panels offer up to 2 x 32 MUdigSA style connectors in a 1U panel, mounted in injection moulded blocks to provide slight movement for easy alignment and complete isolation of connectors. Milled 1U extruded aluminium at the front of the panel provides a rigid construction and a lacing bar is incorporated at the rear.

With BES’ wealth of expertise, custom solutions are also offered upon request. Built in our UK factory, our engineers ensure requests are met at a cost effective price to suit you and your business. From additional connectors to altering the spacing between the connectors, silk screening and modifying panel colours, engineers will work closely with you to produce drawings, samples and undertake testing to meet your exact specification.
